Yum yum sauce for my palate. Patience was rewarded. Cork was fairly dry so be careful when u open yours - use a Coravin — 14 days ago

Again and with Coravin, still a very good wine. 2009 is a very drinkable vintage at this moment — a month ago

Château Palmer

Alter Ego Margaux Red Bordeaux Blend 2009

Another case of coravin failure. This was superb when first accessed but had lost a hell of a lot on the nose a few days later. So many of those wonderful floral, spicy notes were just completely gone or muted(!)

From a #coravin bottle god knows when. Delicious, almost oozing mint chocolate coffee, red current & plum, toasted vanilla bean, solid acid to balance this hedonism — 11 days ago

Many have said to be weary of bottle variation, but this was incredible last night. Tasted with the importer here in Australia - Michael at Quelvino. Previously Coravin-ed bottle, so maybe why it didn't have the spritz everyone talks about.

So inky and meaty. The palate screams sour cherries with an array of spices and herbs. There's a richness imparted by some RS too, I feel. What stumped me the most was the finish - started of big and tannic, then evovles into this subtle drive that goes on and on. I'm guessing this is still too young, with such heavy fruit. Can't wait to try more of this.

Note: The cuvee came with analysis values, which showed good TA and pH for a red. Alcohol was in the low 13's and it was surprisingly dry (0.8 g/l if I recall) - could be fruit sweetness that I was tasting. The spritz mentioned is a common feature of the wines because they finish fermentation in bottle. The grapes used are mainly Croatina, Uva Rara, and Vespolina (also known as Oltrepò ughetta). Italy's OG natty winemaker, making wines from a single cru (monopole?).
